Modeling of Manufacturing Resource Information, Requirements Specification
Kevin K. Jurrens, James E. Fowler, Mary B. Algeo
This document presents the results of a focused effort to comprehensively identify the characteristics of a common representation of a limited set of manufacturing resources. The resources so characterized include milling and turning machine tools, cutting tools appropriate to the processes of milling, drilling, boring, reaming, tapping, turning, grooving, etc., and the tool assembly components required to mount the cutting tools to the machines. The methodology used to determine these characteristics is principally based on a through examination of manufacturing software usage of manufacturing resource data, existing manufacturing resource standards, tooling vendor representations, and related work performed in industry and academia. The manufacturing resource characteristics so determined are organized in this document in a hierarchical fashion and include through descriptions of all resource attributes. These manufacturing resource requirements are intended to serve as the starting point for future NIST work on development of a prototype manufacturing resource database, verification of the resource structure, and pursuit of standardized manufacturing resource representations.
